Details: LECTURE:
“The American Migration and Transformation of Zen Chanting.”Zen Buddhism has influenced Japanese traditional forms such as Noh theater and Shakuhachi music, as well as Western composers such as John Cage and jazz musicians such as Keith Jarrett. However, Zen Buddhist practice has, so to speak, its own indigenous music: the ritual chanting which, along with bells and percussion instruments, form a part of virtually every ceremony and formal event. Like other aspects of Zen teaching and practice, chanting has undergone a widely varied range of adaptations as part of its migration to the North American context. This talk focuses on varieties of performance practice, including how North American teachers view the function and purpose of chanting within the practice as a whole.

Stephen Slottow teaches music theory, is the author of The Music of Carl Ruggles (Pendragon Press, 2009), and is a former professional fiddler and banjo player. He has been practicing Zen in the Harada-Yasutani line since the 1970s.
